Benefits of Same-Day CEREC Crowns

Posted in Crowns

Many dental offices these days have the experience and equipment needed to provide quality dental crowns in record time. The CEREC system is what has made this possible. CEREC stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.”

To summarize, it means producing a durable and beautiful ceramic restoration within a single appointment. What can this technology mean for you the next time you have a crown placed?

Save on Time

The CEREC machine mills out an individualized crown from a solid piece of ceramic. The pattern is based upon scans taken of your teeth. From scanning to milling, you can have the entire process done within a single visit. You don’t have to take multiple days off from work to come in for crown fittings.

Get it Right the First Time

CEREC cuts out the step of waiting for a lab to return the finished product. This means you don’t have to wait weeks for your final crown. You won’t even need to bother with a temporary one! In the majority of cases, you can be sure that you will leave the office that day with a crown that is built to last.

A Beautiful and Lasting Crown

CEREC produces restorations that are customized to each patient, but uniformly of the same excellent quality. A ceramic crown is a beautiful restoration that can protect one of your back teeth from any further damage. It wonderfully resembles a natural tooth, so no one needs to know that it’s there!

Contact your local dental office to find out more about the CEREC technology available in your area. This procedure could help you enjoy a new crown sooner than you thought possible!
